Subband Structure of Silicon Nanowires from the Hensel-Hasegawa-Nakayama Model

Abstract

The subband structure of nanowires is commonly obtained through an atomistic tight binding approach. In this work an alternative, continuum based method is investigated, namely a two-band k ·p approximation of the conduction band structure. A derivation of the subband Schrödinger equations from the bulk model and their numerical solution are presented for… (More)
